Unleash Your Inner Artist at the East End Arts Mosaic Festival this Memorial Day Weekend!

Looking to add some color to your Memorial Day weekend? Well, grab your chalk! East End Arts Mosaic Festival on May 26th, from 12-5 p.m., is about to turn downtown Riverhead into a vibrant masterpiece! 

Picture this: the streets are blocked off, and instead of cars, you’ve got artists armed with chalk, ready to unleash their inner Picassos. And guess what? You can join in the fun too! For just $25 (pre-purchase) or $30 at the event, you can snag yourself a square and doodle to your heart’s content. Pro tip: the more outrageous, the better!

But wait, there’s more! If you’re feeling extra fancy, why not splurge on a sponsorship square? It’s like having your own mini billboard in the middle of all the chaos. Got a business? Perfect! Design the quirkiest advertisement you can think of and watch as people stop and stare (in a good way, we promise).

However, the Mosaic festival is more than just art; it’s a celebration of community spirit. From live entertainment to food trucks, vendors, art exhibits, and a dedicated kid’s zone, there’s no shortage of activities to enjoy. It’s a day filled with laughter, creativity, and the joy of coming together with neighbors and friends.

One of the best parts? The festival is free to attend! For those eager to join in the chalk art fun, squares are available for purchase with pastel chalks included. Parking is convenient and free, with designated areas on the north and south sides of East Main St.

What are you waiting for? Grab your friends and family, and get ready to draw your way through the East End Arts Mosaic Festival. It’s guaranteed to be a day filled with laughter, creativity, and enough chalk to last a lifetime. We hope to see you there!
